What Is Workers' Compensation?

Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that covers medical costs and wage benefits for employees who are injured on the job. Pennsylvania's workers' compensation system is no-fault. This means that in order to receive compensation, you do not need to prove that your employer did anything illegal or that you were not executing your job obligations at the time of injury. In reality, you could be completely at fault for your injuries and yet be eligible for workers' compensation benefits.

Workers' compensation benefits include:

  • Medical benefits: These pay for any reasonable and required medical care, such as visits to the doctor, hospitalization, surgical procedures, medication, and medical equipment. To be eligible for these benefits, you must see a doctor who has been approved by your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier.
  • Wage benefits: The Pennsylvania workers' compensation system provides four types of wage benefits. These consist of permanent total disability benefits, permanent partial disability benefits, and temporary total disability benefits. depend on the severity of your injury and how it has impacted your ability to work.
  • Death benefits: If a person dies on the job, his or her dependents may be eligible for death benefits. Among these benefits are weekly wage-loss benefits and fair funeral costs.

Common Reasons Workers’ Comp Claims Are Denied

You have the option to seek an appeal if your workers' compensation claim is rejected. However, you must do so within 20 days after receiving the denial.

Your claim might not have been approved for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Your employer was not notified of the injury in a timely manner.
  • Your employer denies that your injury is workplace-related.
  • Your employer questions the seriousness of your injury.
  • Your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier did not authorize the doctor you saw.
  • Your employer argues your injury was caused by a pre-existing condition.
  • You did not file your claim petition within the deadline.

It is helpful to have an expert workers' compensation attorney support you during the appeals process. An attorney can assist you in gathering the evidence required to substantiate your claim and can make strong arguments on your behalf before the judge.
